Non Destructive Inspection
Eddy Current & Ultrasonic equipments
EDDY CURRENT TESTING METHOD
Widely used in metallurgical, automotive and aerospace industries eddy current testing method is one of many electromagnetic testing methods used in non destructive testing (NDT) making use of electromagnetic induction to detect and characterize surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive materials.”
Eddy current testing equipments thus can be used for a variety of applications such as cracks detection (discontinuities), measurement of metal thickness, detection of metal thinning due to corrosion and erosion, determination of coating thickness, and the measurement of electrical conductivity and magnetic permeability. Eddy current testing inspection is an excellent method for detecting surface and near surface defects when the probable defect location and orientation is well known.
Some examples of applications :
Inspection of welded rolled tubes, bar, wire
Heat treatment, hardness, coating verification and measurement
Sorting of steel grades and alloys
Conductivity measurement on plate
Our eddy current inspection systems are comprizing of of eddy current instruments for automatic in line inspection of tubes, pipes, bars, wires, cables (in Automotive, Aerospace, Steel and Nuclear industry), eddy current rotating systems such as rotating head for detection of longitudinal defects, magnetizing units for inspection of short defects by encircling coils , sectorial magnetizing unit deduced to weld inspection and also support coil for nonferrous metals.
Our goal is to develop and create performing solutions to improve safety, efficiency and profitability of our customers. We are also always willing to improve the performances of our equipments and systems.
